Hi everyone. Havent been here in a while. Im still on a spirtual quest however I still hold cs dear to my heart and is one of the dogmatic fatiths I contine to come back to becase its not only facinating but its pure love and non judgemental. Im also studying two other faiths but cs will always have a special place and im hapoy to be back.May 22, 2012 at 12:00 pm #62955

Hi Jeremy, I don’t think I we’ve ever met, but good to have you here.
BTW – I have never heard someone call CS dogmatic…Interesting…I’m going to go look up that word.

It has been awhile!!
The last time I heard from you, you had recently attended your first CS church service. I don’t recall the name of the town, but you said that the church met in an old victorian house and that the attendants were very few in number and much older than yourself.
I remember that I posted at that time that perhaps you could find a larger CS church in your area which would be more likely to have some people nearer your own age. I think that I suggested San Bernadino. I know that you said that you do not feel comfortable driving that much, but is it possible for you to find another church in your area? Just an idea.
Anyway, Jeremy, it is great to have you back. Don’t be a stranger.May 25, 2012 at 3:24 am #63066
Yes, in what sense is CS dogmatic? As in kitty-cat-matic?
Had to say that, sorry!
CS isn’t going anywhere. I just love it. Glad you’re checking it out too!May 28, 2012 at 8:43 pm #63257
What are you learning on your spiritual journey, brother Jeremy? What do you think it’s all about?June 4, 2012 at 9:58 am #63688
Hello everyone. To be honest im getting no where on this spirtual quest. Im always unhappy always in dres about ecerything. I feel trapped in my own life that really isnt any life at all. My fears and anxieties prevent me from truly gwtting out and doing what I want not to mention im at a job rhat I hate annd limits me from doing things as well. I wish I had the faith u all have but I cant seem to grasp. Im seeing a psyhcologist whoae going to be putting me under hypnosis to try abd gekp my fears vut its nit onky that I,want thjngs,that for one reason ir aner I cant find like a girlfriend but they treat me like dirt maje me feel like im nothing ugly and worthless. Even when u was going to the mirmon,church not one female gave me any kind of wekcome. Sorry for the rant. I hust want to ve haooy and have the things I truly want out of life…..June 4, 2012 at 10:14 am #63689
Jeremy, these kind of struggles are very personal and private, and are usually better suited for one-on-one situations than leaving them up to the whims of opinion on a web forum. I know exactly what you’re describing here, and my honest recommendation is that you seek out the aid of a Christian Science practitioner. I’ll be sending you a private message about it.June 4, 2012 at 10:30 am #63690
Im sorry if im off topic but I cant seem to talk to anyone and I always felt a trust in this forum.June 4, 2012 at 10:51 am #63691
Hi Jeremy, I agree with what Gordon said, and I’d also simply add a recommendation to stay away from hypnotism, at least if you are interested in making progress in Christian Science. The books reveal to us that those two are exact opposites – hypnotism is another person controlling your mind, Christian Science is the acknowledgement of the control of divine Mind (God). No matter what someone may say, they never mix, in fact they only take away from each other.
As for the rest, remember what Jesus told us in Matthew 6:33 “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

I think that you’d get a lot out of a one on one conversation and spiritual treatment (if you choose), but I also think that it’s fine to ask people here on the forum for ideas on issues you’re grappling with. Because sometimes we’ve had similar experiences…and if nothing else, you’ll see that there are solutions to those issues.
I’ve got to run right now, but I’ll be back…and happy to share. ;)June 4, 2012 at 5:21 pm #63698
I hope you feel comfortable seeking in whatever way seems right to you at the moment. We have all faced serious challenges in one form or another…but, like Mike indicates, I personally would avoid hypnotism at all costs. Why? because it is a system which undermines one’s normal inclinations and thoughts. It is nothing more than mental trickery and manipulation.
I love Christian Science. It promises that God, divine Love, will melt away every problem.
Here’s my favorite line of all time from Science and Health: “The power of Christian Science and divine Love is omnipotent. It is indeed adequate to unclasp the hold and to destroy disease, sin, and death.” (See page 412:13-15)
